Inking and Afternoon Tea

Good evening everyone I hope you are all Ok and  had a good week not impressed with the weather we got spoiled with all the fantastic temperatures.
Well tonight I'm sharing something I made at craft group at our last meeting before the summer break.Its  an inked background using Distress Oxide inks and  then stamped It was led by another member Andrea I really enjoyed it but I was way out of my comfort zone .Its not perfect but I thought I'd share my first attempt with you.

Card Recipe

5x7 card 
White linen card
Distress Oxide Inks in various colours 
Stamps are Andrea's not sure of the make 
We made a mask to make the sun

I did enjoy doing this and am sure could improve. I'd certainly like to give it another go.

I'm ending my post with a photo with some of my lovely ex work colleagues at an Afternoon Tea get together at Wynyard Hall on Monday. A beautiful venue, great weather.and company.

Have a lovely weekend everyone. Our Son, Daughter in law and Grandson Miles are visiting for the weekend we are so looking forward to seeing them.  Love and hugs Carole x

  2. Hi this is a stunning card I love it. Enjoy your weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  3. It looks pretty perfect to me Carole! In fact it's stunning. Love the scene you have created. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  4. Your background looks fabulous Carole and the inking beutifully blended, sometimes it's good to go outside our comfort zone, for me that's sweet images that need colouring in.

    Have a good wekend with your family, like you I am missing the sunshine.
